The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam:
1900 H.M. Caldwell Co. Plaque Edition

I have labeled this as the H.M. Caldwell Co. Plaque edition, since the cover has this inlaid relief/plaque of a lounging woman. It’s very striking, I don’t think I’ve seen anything quite like it. Beyond the cover, it’s a pretty basic edition.

This edition was graciously contributed by a visitor. Thank you!

The Book Itself

Binding is in rough condition (in these shots), but the cover, wow, that cover!

The Poetry

Nothing interesting here with the type or layout.
